Hi! This piece was inspired by a time in my life, when everything around me didn't feel quite right.. :)

A Dwelling on Skelital Hill

August 7, 2020

The house had become aware of itself, of the history that echoed within the walls. Its oldest residents were the spiders. Many generations had laced the walls with cobwebs of intricate beauty, though now even they lay among the dusty rags. It's been three decades since a footstep had echoed within those walls, since the soot had been disturbed and the have ghosts awoken. 

And so one day, after time unmeasured, the house opened each door and window. It shivered at first, for the wind felt cold and it was used to the dust and the odour of nothing.
